Are you referring to the ServerFilter property of a form?

ts actually a feature of the built on ribbon and the toobar - which is prob the same thing you are referring to but I get to it this way and just dont understand it.

If you go to Customise Ribbons
The click on Home
Then click on Sort and Filter
Then click on Advanced
There is Server Filter by Form

Thanks so much for your help

I didnt resolve this as in "Server Filter by Form" although I would like to know what it means.  I built a button in the toolbar and used datasheet view for them and this seemed to work fine.  How should I allocate points here.  Thank you though for your help.

I think the two are the same. If so, then "Server FilterByForm" is used when you're working with forms bound to SQL data and you want to attempt to let the server filter your results instead of letting Access/VBA try to do so. My understanding is that if the server cannot filter the data, then Access will do so locally, however there can be a bit of a delay while Access tries to determine this. In general, unless you know that Server Filter By Form will work consistently, you're better off just using the standard Filter By Form stuff.
